1.) Political - the North won the civil war, thereby forcing the South to rejoin the United States. It also meant that the South had to emancipate its slaves (as well as anyone in the North who may have had slaves). Insofar as this latter consequence had huge implications on the other three categories you mentioned, this was indeed a political move.
2.) Economic - The Antebellum South thrived on slave labor. Again, this is not to say that the North did not have slaves. However, by the time of the civil war, slavery was much more fundamental to Southern culture and economics than in the North; Abolitionism was mostly a Northern initiative, where business, banking, factories, government, and other institutions thrived. The South produced the raw materials for textile goods (cotton especially), and the North turned these into products that could be sold within the nation as well as internationally. This also gave them enough money to afford more people to be in service industries or at least not-self-sufficient industries such as law, fashion, journalism, etc. Basically, if this system between North and South did not exist, nearly every one would have had to practice subsistence farming.
Abolition had huge implications on Southern economics because now all African Americans were apart of the labor market as opposed to being free labor that slave owners were only required to keep in minimal even squalid conditions. It is also noteworthy that the states did not carry this change out fully all at once. In any event, all of this has implications on Southern society.
Additionally, during the Civil War, the South began printing money like crazy, and so the money became essentially useless. The reasons are all apart of both basic and complicated economic principals (supply and demand, etc.). There were even people who ended up burning their money because it was worthless, and pictures of children standing among stacks of money taller than them.
3.) Social - Again, abolition had a huge impact on society. The war itself left a mark, that has persisted to today, which divides the North and the South. The cultures were different long before the war, and I'm sure people had strong feelings toward one or the other, but we probably wouldn't celebrate Abraham Lincoln, and there wouldn't be any Southerners that do Civil war reenactments, if the feelings from this war weren't still felt to some degree today.
With former slaves joining the labor market, some poorer whites now had to "compete" (rhetorically and sometimes literally) with African Americans. Abolition completely revolutionized (not to a perfect extent of course) the idea of blackness; to be black no longer meant you were a slave, though the feelings towards black people did not become overwhelmingly warmer among white people.
4.) I'm not sure what you mean by physical. A lot of people died. The North and South became the United States again.
